JJ's Sunday Edition

Ker Plunk! Listen up! Another Sunday Edition is hitting your virtual front porch. Let's get started.

Weather: Sunny and humid for "Zinzinnati's Huge Octoberfest" but so far no rain. Perfect for a cold iced "Cup o Joe!" (or beer)

Page One: The Week that Was-or Wasn't: It was a sad week after we lost two well known transgender celebrity/activists. Following a long illness Alexis Arquette passed on as did The Lady Chablis who had a pivotal role in the Clint Eastwood directed film "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."

Both passed at relatively early ages.


Page Two: Opinion: Yesterdays Coffee: It's been awhile but here at JJ's I have tried to pass along the simple warning to never take our security for granted as transgender women on a semi regular basis. As cis women can be the first to tell us, there are any number of places we shouldn't be seen in un-escorted. Lets be careful out there please!!!!

Page Three: The Back Page: Well kids it's time to head out and take on a busy afternoon and evening. Love you all! Be safe :)

While My Blog Gently Weeps

Last week we lost two well known transgender celebrities.

The first was "The Lady Chablis" who starred in the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." Brenda Dale Knox also was known as an author and drag performer who passed on at the early age of 59.


Passing at even an earlier age was actress and trans rights activist "Alexis Arquette" At 47, she was best known for her roles in "Pulp Fiction" and the Wedding Singer.

The untimely passage of both seems to be yet another example of the tougher lives most transgender women and trans men live outside the so called norms of society.

R.I.P. ladies, you both will be missed.
